A Conversation for Papaya

Seeds are edible too

I've long known of the digestive and tenderising qualities of papaya.

I find it odd that in an otherwise thorough article, the author makes no mention that the seeds are in fact edible, and are pleasantly peppery to the taste.

I would also think the different varieties and sizes of papaya could have been alluded to ~ most supermarkets here in the UK only stock the small papaya. Anyone who's lived or travelled in the tropics, or has visited an 'ethnic' greengrocer, will have seen the much larger fruit. Due to the immense difference in size, I doubt that all papaya have only 30 calories to a half, as stated.
